    Community Estimate Your Plastic Consumption and Go #PlasticNeutral
    What did you find out about your plastic consumption by using the calculator? What did or didn't surprise you?

    I had the illusion that I used less plastic than most people, but boy was I wrong. While I wasn't high in the US, my plastic use was miles above India. This just reinvigorated my desire to reduce plastic where I can.
